I was hoping for a somewhat raw feeling for some "from the hip" shots. Prefocus to about 20', f/2.8, 1/40". Didn't try too many of these shots, but most were just too blurry. Would normally go with a wide AF lens, but I had my SiS lens on for today (SMC-K 55/1.8). Worth pursuing?

No. From the hip shots are tough to do not make the viewer feel like he is there. It takes the personal element out of it. As for hyperfocal focusing, it does work well with some lenses, but the 50's and up is killer hard to do. The longest lenses I would ever use with hyperfocal are 40mm on APS-C. The 50's do work well on full frame / film.

I put a few shooting tips here in this thread

Thanks for the comments Javier and the extra info on flickr was great too. Do you mainly do hyperfocal, MF or AF?

Great facial shots Mark.

When I use my Pentax gear, I will use hyperfocal about half the time, when I use my Nikon gear, I use auto focus c 100% of the time.
